The long goodbye by Robert Altman( Visual )

5 editions published between 1973 and 2014 in English and held by 791 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For The Long Goodbye, Robert Altman successfully transports Philip Marlowe, incarnated by Elliott Gould, to the over-privileged, full-color 70s. Marlowe is lonely and shabby, yet does not seem an anachronism in the contemporary world. Unlike Bogart's Marlowe, this is a not especially tough Marlowe. He's a bright, conscientiously solemn nut, a guy who hopes for the best but expects the worst. This particular Philip Marlowe, despite evidence to the contrary, persists in believing that not all relationships need be opportunistic or squalid

LA in the 50's: Notorious gangster Mickey Cohen has just been put away for tax evasion, and now a bunch of his heroin is missing. Outside wise guys would love to move in on Mickey's territory; Captain Dudley Smith of the LAPD has launched a special squad to deal with them. Violent, thuggish team member Bud White's partner is murdered during a robbery at The Nite Owl coffee shop. The responding officer is rising star Detective Lieutenant Ed Exley, whose investigation intersects with that of Detective Jack Vincennes. Their leads point to Pierce Patchett, a drug dealing pimp whose prostitutes are surgically altered to look like movie stars. Nothing is as it seems in the glittering city of Angels, which, despite its open streets and warm welcoming air, is a city constructed of secrets. As Hollywood scandal sheet editor Sid Hudgens says, some things in L.A. are always going to be "Off the record, on the QT, and very hush-hush."

Moanin' by Art Blakey( Recording )

4 editions published between 1963 and 1999 in Undetermined and No Linguistic content and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a particularly obscure live set by Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers, one not even listed in most discographies. The 1968 edition of Blakey's band was a strong if underrated unit consisting of the drummer/leader, trumpeter Bill Hardman, trombonist Julian Priester, tenor saxophonist Billy Harper, pianist Ronnie Mathews and bassist Lawrence Evans. This CD is well-recorded and is highlighted by "Slide's Delight," Harper's ballad feature on "You Don't Know What Love Is," and a spirited remake of "Moanin." [This is the 1968 Laserlight edition of the LP.] Scott Yanow
